The Honorable Commissioner was received by the North-central Zonal Coordinator of the Federal Ministry for Youth and Sports, Mrs Bitmang and the Driector of Sports, Prof Ezra Gunen, who took him round the competitions venues.
The Commissioner expressed delight with athletes performance and promised Government support for hard work and achievements.
As results of day 1 of competition unfolds, Plateau has secured automatic tickets in the female category of Basketball, Handball and Hockey. This is due to advantage of only two teams registering for the Sports and in the case of Hockey, only Plateau state presented female team. Nasarawa and Niger won the two slots in male Basketball and Hockey.
In Football, Plateau came from a goal down to defeat Nasarawa 2 -1, to boost her chances of a place in Delta. A draw with Niger in her next match, will be enough to seal the ticket.
It was a sad news for Plateau who produced the youngest teams in Beach Volleyball, as both the male and female teams narrowly missed the chance for a slot in Delta. The teams came 3rd from groups that has FCT, Niger and Kogi.
Hostilities will continue tomorrow in Volleyball and Football. It is expected that the Elimination will be concluded tomorrow as well.
